Robert,

I would like to hear some details about using a wiki as a single-source authoring tool. It is a standalone wiki application? What is your output? Can you point to some sources for this?

Keeping up with new technology is the job. A lot of the standards the
products I'm writing about today are built on didn't exist or were not
very well known ten years ago. I'm using a wiki as a single-source
authoring tool, that wasn't practical ten years ago.
